The Wedding Singer follows Robbie Hart, a nice guy who once seemed to have a future as a rock star, but has settled, happily, into his role as a wedding singer with his bandmates, Sammy and George.
He’s engaged to be married to Linda, but at his own wedding he’s left at the altar after Linda decides she doesn’t want to be married to a guy who “sings while people chew and lives in his grandma’s basement.”
Devastated, Robbie realizes he can no longer perform at weddings, so decides to try to find alternate employment, with disastrous, and hilarious, results.
Meanwhile, his friendship with waitress, Julia Sullivan, is growing into something more serious, but Julia’s engaged to Glen Gulia, a slimy Wall Street-type with questionable morals both financially and romantically.
Robbie and Julia's friends and family, including Julia's wild cousin Holly and Robbie's Grandma Rosie, can see that the couple are meant to be together, but Julia and Robbie don’t seem to be able to make that happen.
In the end, Ronald Reagan, Billy Idol, Cindi Lauper, Tina Turner and Imelda Marcos step in and try to stall the wedding of Glen and Julia until Robbie can arrive in Vegas and declare his love.
Will Robbie and Julia get together? Will Holly decide that "stupid" Sammy is the only guy for her? Will Glen get his comeuppance? Will Imelda have fabulous shoes? Slip on your leg warmers, tease up your hair, fluff out your parachute pants and come to the show and find out!
